Buffalo Pumps Inc.
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Buffalo Pumps Inc. is a centrifugal pump manufacturer established in 1887. Based in North Tonawanda, New York, they have a long history equipping ships ever since WW1. Although they didn’t start by manufacturing their products with asbestos, as it was becoming a vital component in many products from the WW2 period up until the 80s, they too have integrated it in their manufacturing process, thus putting their workers at serious health risks.
